    No. A jb iPhone cannot be located on its on without having enabled that feature before.
    Only if you have find my iPhone enabled.

    You want to block Find My iPhone from being able to locate the jailbroken iPhone? Yes, you can install a few things on the iPhone to prevent it from reporting its location to Find My iPhone.

    ok, so how can i prevent it to call it Home? The Phone isn't JB until now.

    Or: Do the Phone the calling before i have finished the JB and finished to install the Programs?

    And what program ist it, what the Phone blocks to call Home?

    I do not know what the tweak is called that prevents Find My iPhone from locating the device. You will have to jailbreak to install it.

    The location is sent to Apple when it is requested via iCloud.com or by using the Find My iPhone app. It may also send the location for other system services automatically as soon as it has a network connection as well.

    This is all a bit fishy. If you want to disable it just turn of location services. If that's restricted by your mum and dad then your out of luck.

    They probably tried restoring it with itunes and now its stuck on the icloud lock screen. That's why you cannot track it any more.
    Just make sure you dont remove it from your icloud devices so the thieves will not be able to use it.
